L'Oreal Paris Studio Secrets Smoothing Resurfacing Primer

L'Oreal Paris Studio Secrets Smoothing Resurfacing Primer - £14.29
I bought this primer a couple of weeks ago, as I was running low on Benefit's 'That Gal' Brightening primer, and had never tried anything else. In Boots, I rubbed a little from the tester on the back of my hand, and ran to the till! I loved it. It claims to mask wrinkles and uneven textures in the skin, making the complexion feel smooth and soft, with a remarkable velvety touch.' - and I couldn't agree more. My skin looks noticeably different after application, and although I can't comment on the wrinkle masking claims, it really does help to even everything out, and make it super soft.

You don't need to use much, as it's easy to blend into a large area, and it leaves your skin feeling so smooth. I use it after moisturising, making sure that it's sunk in nicely first. I've tried using this with both liquid and powder foundations, and I noticed such a huge difference with both of them. Although it isn't very 'brightening' like my old Benefit primer, it really makes up for it in the smoothing department.
It  has no fragrance, and blends right into your skin, leaving behind no traces of colour - just smoothness!
At £14.29, it isn't exactly cheap, but compared to other drugstore brands, in my opinion, this one definitely comes out on top, and is worth every penny.

Have you ever tried this product before? Will you be tempted in the future?
Thanks for reading!

  2. I just might try this! I used to buy the Smashbox primer, but it always irritates my skin. thanks for the suggestion!

    1. Ah, I've just been looking at the Smashbox primer today! My skin is irritated easily, so maybe I'd better hold off buying it for a while :)
